Spring is here and that means the weather will be getting warmer. Around this time Imagawa Yoshimoto prayed for a successful Kyoto campaign at Sengen Shrine. As we all know, it did not work as he was killed at the Battle of Okehazama by the Uesama. For people who are planning to visit both the Arimatsu and the Toyoake City Okehazama battlefields, my friend Hide who write for Mikawa-Hide blog, has a great link for those who want to see the key areas. The link is in Japanese and it includes photos as well. http://ameblo.jp/mikawa-hide/entry-11510369137.html
Hide includes both the Arimatsu and Toyoake City Okehazama battlefields, Kamagatani, Koutokuin, Sena Ujitoshi Camp, and Tofukuji.
Another great link in Japanese: http://okehazama.net May 18th, will be the Arimatsu Okehazama Matsuri. I suggest if you are in the area around this time, please go. You will not be disappointed.
Nobunaga no tame!
